The “Modeling and Rehabilitation Robotics” research team developed a safe and minimalistic control and learning (AI) algorithm, which automatically finds and provides the optimal balance between rigid support and “soft” guidance for any given patient during therapy. This assist-as-needed (AAN) control strategy is being commercialized in collaboration with the high-tech startup Reactive Robotics and Schön Klinik Bad Aibling, as part of a robotic assistive device called VEMO, used for the early rehabilitation of ICU patients.
The big plus in quality of life, independence and security in old age – that’s what it’s all about when LongLeif GaPa gGmbH and the Geriatronics Research Center give an insight into their fields of work at the open day on Sa., 10.10.2020 from 10:30 to 17:30.
On Wednesday, Minister Bernd Sibler visited the Geriatronics Research Centre. The focus was on the question of how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can facilitate the everyday life of elderly people or can be used sensibly in nursing care.
TUM President Hofmann and high-ranking representatives of Garmisch-Partenkirchen visited the Geriatronics Research Center with the aim of establishing a “Geriatronics Campus” on site.
On Wednesday, June 26, 2019, the German Ethics Council held its annual meeting to discuss the complex ethical questions raised by the use of robotic technologies in care and especially in nursing for the elderly.
As life expectancies in industrial countries get longer, qualified nursing care workers are in increasingly short supply. The TUM User and Research Center for Geriatronics aims to remedy this problem. The center opened on Saturday in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. Robotic assistants will be developed and tested in field studies to help old people to live independently. The project will receive support from the Bavarian state government and the municipality of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
